Daniel Agdag: Sydney Contemporary 2015

10-13 SEPTEMBER | STAND E06, CARRIAGEWORKS

The human relationship to machines, especially mechani- cal non-computerised devices, is intimate, scaled to the body and to the mind: if I pull a lever or move a switch, I can easily imagine a direct correlation between my activity and an outcome. The machine -as an extension of the hu- man body, and the soul – is given externalised agency. By adding a sense of autonomy to these new works, Agdag’s spooky sculptures take on a sense of the inhuman, and their signature playfulness a much darker hue.
